CBS upgraded to Buy at UBS

As reported previously, UBS analyst Doug Mitchelson upgraded CBS (CBS) to Buy from Sell. The analyst sees any deal with Viacom (VIA) as priced into CBS shares already. He also has increased confidence in consensus estimates for CBS and sees further upside if the national TV ad market and CBS' ratings remain strong. Mitchelson raised his price target to $66 from $52 on CBS shares.

Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1.

Brean Capital says merger between Viacom and CBS is quite possible
Brean Capital analyst Alan Gould believes a merger between Viacom (VIA) and CBS (CBS) is quite possible. In such a scenario, the analyst sees Viacom buying CBS, which would allow for a greater premium to CBS shareholders, but he added there is also the possibility of CBS doing the buying. Gould believes a merger would be the best way to maximize returns for both shareholders. He also believes such a merger could already be discounted in the shares. Gould rates CBS a Buy with a $65 price target.

Viacom dividend likely to be eliminated, says Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo says that the market is expecting Viacom (VIA,VIAB) to cut its dividend by 50%. However, Wells Fargo says that the company will eliminate its entire dividend within tow months from now. The firm says that a 50% cut would enable Viacom to barely make its debt payments for the next year but still leave it "with limited financial visibility running at break-even with no cushion." The firm thinks that the company needs at least some cash cushion. It does not expect the company to merge with CBS (CBS) and keeps an Underperform rating on Viacom.
